Chicken fajita recipe

Colourful fajitas are a great way for children to ‘eat the rainbow’, while experiencing spice and world flavours. They also enable children to serve themselves, which encourages more uptake of vegetables through independent food selection.

When children serve themselves and make their fajitas, it adds a level of independence and fun to mealtimes. This creates a relaxed environment, ideal for trying new flavours and textures.

If your child is not used to feeding themselves, a great way to encourage this is through messy play! Messy play helps children to get used to sticky hands and messy faces, which means they'll be much more likely to touch food and feed themselves.
